According to Mitchams book: "Hitlers Foreign Legions" there were at least 20 LW Field Divs. Most performed terribly (as expected) as their men had recieved little or no training and most that saw combat were destroyed, captured or dissolved and sent to other units or duties. However, not all LW Field Divs performed horribly-a few actually did a decent job of things.

  • An "in-depth" attempt to tell the unit history of each of the 22 Field Divisions. After reading through a few, you come to see that aside from the division number, it is almost the same story over and over. Little training, meager resources, outdated equipment, smaller unit sizes compared to the Heer divisions, very little support from higher command and it is disaster after disaster. There were proof-reading errors throughout, but if you want each units story, pick this book up.

  • ENJOYED THE SUBJECT MATTER IN THIS BOOK, BUT AGAIN MR. MUNOZ TENDS TO LOSE FOCUS AND WANDERS ONCE THE NARRATIVE IS EXTENDED BEYOND THE BASIC FACTS. FOUND THE INSIGNIA DESCRIPTIONS USEFUL, BUT THE NARRATIVE TENDED TO COME TO THE SAME CONCLUSION EVERY TIME. THESE LUFTWAFFE FIELD DIVISIONS GOT THEIR CLOCKS CLEANED ALMOST EACH AND EVERY TIME WITH ONE OR TWO EXCEPTIONS. THERE SEEMED TO BE NO REAL DRAMA IN TRACING THE DESTRUCTION OF THESE UNITS, SO THAT WHILE THE HISTORY WAS INFORMATIVE, THE END RESULT WAS I WAS LEFT FLAT AS A READER.

  • I excitedly bought this book since there is so little on these divisions in the English language. The author is to be commended on tackling the subject, but the end result is disappointing. Many of the photos are poorly reproduced, and many are misidentified/mis-titled. I happen to "know of" one of the individuals that provided many images for this work, and he supplied the correct ID's for the images. These were ignored. Had this book been printed on better stock, the images might have come out better.
    The text is dry at best, and I do not think I have ever encountered a book on a historical subject with so many glaring grammatical errors. I realize that translation is not easy, and some things do not translate well. However, I have many books in my library from Western and Eastern Europe and Russia, and translated into English. This is the worst one in my collection.
    In the end, I am glad I have this book, but I think I would have been better served to rely on some tertiary sources, along with the titles from Osprey and Concord, and saved my money. My experience with this volume makes me shy of purchasing any others from this publisher.

  • Book covers these german air force divisions from start to finish when they get incorporated into the german army. The fighting ablities of the division traced with each division and the theaters they operated in. These division were not suppose to be committed to the front lines but situation said other wise. These units had light division capablities and could not stand up to the main russian threat. Rear area security and limited fron line combat was their expertise.

  • I will admit when I first received this book and paged through it I was a little disappointed. I was expecting detailed info on uniforms, high quality photos, etc. However recently I found myself needing info on a specific Luftwaffe Pioneer Battalion (after coming across period award documents relating to the particular unit). I found myself wondering how I would find more info about this unit? Searching the net I found very little to go on, looking in a popular "order of battle" book series it appeared to only cover Heer/Waffen SS units, and my Osprey military series books weren't any help either. So I picked up my copy of "Goring's Grenadiers" Luftwaffe Field Divisions book and started to page through it. To my surprise I found a wealth of info on the exact unit I was searching for and more, much more (commanding officers, specific dates and battles, complete unit organization, illustrations of two different versions of unit insignia, detailed maps of combat actions, unit timeline, etc). Without this particular book I would have been completely out of luck.

    If you are seeking a book written for casual reading with exciting "Hollywood-type" accounts about the actions of various soldiers who were part of the Luftwaffe Field Divisions this is NOT that book. If you are looking for a comprehensive and accurate unit history containing detailed info on each of the Luftwaffe Field Divisions and the smaller units they were made up of, you are in luck! This book is a must for the World War II amateur/pro historian, WWII militaria collector, or anyone who is researching or needs more info about a specific Luftwaffe Field Division from an English-language source. I highly recommend it!

  • color photo's of actual uniforms would have helped, This book seems to have been rushed. The photo's of uniforms are poor and blurry. Drawings are crude and useless. The text is somewhat helpfull.

  • I've owned this book for several years now. It served to get me started in doing my own research, especially on the 7th and 8th LwFDs and Groups Spang and Stahell. Regrettably, as far as the two divisions are concerned, much of the information provided by the author is inaccurate or incomplete and often relies on the works of other authors whose accounts may not directly match historical documents.

  • A tragic story.From inception,ill conceived ,ill equipted .The Luftwaffe Field Divisions were another grab for more power for Herman
    Goering.A waste of time and money.Should've handed the 200,000 plus to the Heer.
    The book is a good basic guide,to these formations.I like it,easy to read ect .Pick one up for $25.00.A good buy!
